As a kid, I was big fan of X-Men. That is why it was such a disappointment to watch this movie (about a decade ago). I was hoping for impressive effects and interesting characters, but instead got an uninteresting Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and too much of a focus on the Anna Paquin character, Rogue. I remember been saddened by Halle Berry's performance, perhaps because I was not a fan, but also because I was also a fan of the character she plays, Storm, and she just didn't do a good job. There are decent performances by the old men playing the leaders of the opposing factions, Xavier and Magneto. But even then, it was business-as-usual for them.
